First, Brut Yellow Label looks beautiful:
golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny
bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose:
initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins,
then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the
fine balance between the fruity aromas coming
from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas
following the ageing in the bottle.
The first sip delivers all the freshness and
forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with
asymphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is
a true member of the powerful Brut family,
well structured, admirably vinous. The
lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each
fruit or spice note distinct.
Reims (Rheims) is a city of the Champagne-Ardenne region in northern France located 89 miles east-northeast of Paris. It was founded by the Gauls and became a major city during the period of the Roman Empire. Reims has played a very important role in French history, as it was the place where kings like Charles VII were crowned. Besides the rich history Reims is world-famous for its sparkling wine. Many of the largest Champagne producing houses, known as les grandes marques, have their headquarters in Reims where Champagne is aged in the maze of caves and tunnels under the city.
